Clearance: Wire Winder (16 inch Universal Plate Mount)
This is an R1 clearance item. Please check the tables below to see how we rate our clearance items.
Rugged construction, ease of use and superior performance have made Pro-Tatch® the best selling wire winder on the market. The Pro-Tatch hydraulic wire winder is 100% Full-Satisfaction Guaranteed.
The Pro-Tatch wire winder can be mounted and operated by one person. To wind, just park your vehicle, tie a weight on far end of wire to prevent recoil (a short length of chain works well), and pull wire toward you. When the reel is full, tie the roll with 4 retainer wires held by pre-drilled holes at the edges of the reel. The reel splits easily by spinning the nut off the 1" shaft, and the roll lifts away without binding. To unwind wire, tie wire to a post, set your vehicle's hydraulic control lever to the "float" position and drive forward to unwind.
A ball valve provides infinitely variable speed control. The smooth-operating valve allows you to easily select any rotational speed from fast down to creep, as well as completely stopped. The wire winder's hydraulic motor provides ample power for hard jobs like pulling barbed wire through tall grass or vines. Even the heaviest underbrush is no match for the Pro-Tatch winder.
“We rolled up 15,000 feet of barbed wire, some of which had to be pulled out of vines and heavy vegetation. The Pro-Tatch worked perfectly every time and saved us countless hours of back breaking work rolling it by hand… My advice is, buy it.”
– Tim S., TX
The winder rolls barbed or smooth wire, light cable, hose, tubing, rope or similar materials. Holds 1/2 mile of barbed wire or 1 mile of smooth wire. (Click here if you need a larger winder.)
The 20" diameter, 12 gauge steel wire winder drum is virtually indestructible, and mounts on a heavy duty frame constructed of 11 gauge, 3" square tube. Long life, replaceable, moly-impregnated poly bushings prevent wear to steel parts.
After wire has been rolled up on the Pro-Tatch winder, it can easily be put back on the spool for unwinding. Just put your hydraulic lever in "float" position and drive... the circulation of hydraulic fluid through the motor provides perfect resistance to keep the reel from overspinning. If you're using a skid steer loader without a hydraulic "float" position, you can connect the Pro-Tatch's two hose ends together (using your own adapter) for the same effect.
The Pro-Tatch works fine as a wire winder, cable roller, wire rope winder. Will roll up almost any kind of cable or wire, including high tensile wire.
Purchase price includes shipping to any U.S. address except Alaska and Hawaii.
Includes frame, reel, hydraulic motor, valve and hoses. Just add your style of hose ends and you're ready to roll wire.

Expanded Ratings Descriptions
|R1||Very close scrutiny is required to tell that the item isn’t brand new. Working surfaces may show slight wear; for example, the bottom-inside of a Bosch mixer bowl may show swirl marks because Bosch mixer whips are designed to “float” against bottom of bowl. Non-working surfaces (cabinet, control panel) look essentially new. Carton may not be perfect.|
|R2||Typically has a small scuff or mark on a non-working surface like a mixer cabinet or the top of a pressure cooker lid.|
|FR||Mostly returned items which have been brought fully up to new-equipment performance specs at the factory.|
|D||Demonstration items have been operated briefly at Pleasant Hill Grain.|
|DIS||These items have never been used but we no longer sell them at full price in our store because it was discontinued by us or by the manufacturer.|
|U||Has had light use.|
|SDB||Has moderate damage or blemish on a non-working surface, such as a scratch or dent in the housing, or paint blemish.|
|NOS||A brand new item that isn't the newest model.|

By Dennis W., KS on 11/13/2014 - Verified BuyerWe use it for rolling up used barb wire from fences we are taking down, it worked very well for this application. The thing that we really like about it is being able to remove the roll from the winder without needing a separate spool for each roll. We built a mount to attach it to a skid steer loader, and we installed a flow control to limit speed.3 out of 3 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Mark B., NE on 5/6/2013 - Verified BuyerThe Pro-Tatch winder is fast, easy to use, nice to work with. Smooth startup prevents breakage. Built to last, with replaceable wear bushings. It would be a great value even at twice the price.3 out of 3 people found this review helpful. Did you?
